My son is 6 months old and has his first cold my husband and I are currently sick too making this that much harder and he is my first. He will fall asleep on me just fine like when he is healthy but the moment I lay him down he wakes up screaming. He has a stuffy nose but I wouldn't think that would bother him when I lay him down because he is fine when held. I really just don't know what to do I don't have a vaporizer, my Aunt said I could borrow hers but I haven't gotten it yet ( one car and my husband is using it right now).
I made some homemade saline solution and have been using that throughout the day. I just need a way to lay him down and for him to stay asleep.
I barely got any sleep last night because I was up and down all night. I am willing to do cry it out if no one has any better solutions I would just rather come up with something better if I can.
ETA when I hold him he is on his tummy and that's normally how he sleeps he just flips himself over should I try putting him down on his tummy?
